Bonding with a Family of Friends


Last night I had dinner with a wonderful collection of friends to talk about a taboo subject. We took part in the evening as part of a project called Death Over Dinner [2]. 8 of us ate outside on a perfect, balmy summer night, with exquisite food and drink. There were tears and laughter as we shared stories about loved ones we had lost. And as we confessed our fears of mortality, it brought us closer together. A grand experiment and highly recommended.
